Answer


Access through the Library website

Login with your NETID and password for off-campus access.

Databases search box 

If you would like to access a specific database, such as JSTOR, search for it through this box.

Journal Finder 

If you would like to access a specific journal, use this box to see where we have online access.

Article Finder 

If you have the citation information for a specific article, you can enter it on this page to be taken directly to the article through the library’s subscriptions.

Subject Guides 

You can also access databases and journals from off-campus by logging in through the links on subject guides. note: Subject Guides are a good way to discover which journals are good for searching in a particular subject or topic.


 Google Scholar 

Sign in through the library website to be able to directly link into articles from off-campus.

We do not always have direct access, so if access is unavailable choose the "Check BYU" link to see if we have access through another source.

You may also change your personal Google Scholar preferences to display the link to check if the library has access by following the instructions below:

Go into Scholar Preferences and search for BYU in the section titled Library Links. Check the box next to Brigham Young University - GET IT! @ BYU and save. You will then see the “Check BYU” link below article citations.  Please note that if you use this method you will not be able to direct link into articles from off-campus. You will need to always use the "Check BYU" link to see if we have access.
